I'm in SJPdP RIGHT NOW and I just saw Martin Sheen. I'm 100% sure...he waved at me when he saw me staring inquisitively! Why's he here??
I'm off tomorrow walking. Thanks to everyone on this board for all their help over the last few months!!
Are there lockers in the Austerlitz train station in Paris? I arrive early in the morning and don't leave until later that night and would love to drop off my backpack and wander the town for a little bit.
Any suggestions on a mobile carrier that's prepaid (or pay-as-you-go) that would work in France AND Spain? (I'll be returning to France for a week and a half after my Camino.)

OK...so who can translate it? Is it most likely locals stealing bags? So wouldn't Spanish be enough?
"This bag does not contain any valuables, only dirty clothes."
Would people mess with it just to mess with it then?
Swell. Thanks for the update. I leave for SJPdP a week from tomorrow.
Does anyone know if a Tyvek sheet will keep them away (not counting any that might fall from the top bunk)? I'm thinking of bringing one. It's light and durable enough that it can make a quick picnic throw if needed as well.
